Faith is a pervading inner sense–a knowing–that there is a higher organizing force that is continually creating according to a model of wholeness and harmony and that all is in “Divine Order”–that all is well. When you embrace this knowing, your life entrains to it, proving you right, with circumstances organizing according to it so that your life experience reflects your resonance with harmony. What a blessing this is! It is an energetic tie to the Oneness Matrix. We were born with this “expectation of harmony,” and it is not until we begin to focus into the duality matrix and allow ourselves to be receptive to our limited ego’s fears that our faith dims. As we awaken and begin our spiritual journey back to Wholeness, we undergo various stages of faith evolution.
Many of us go through the stage in which faith is an absolute belief that a parental God is handling things. Absolute belief is powerful, indeed. And this works wonderfully well when you are at a certain level of consciousness development and haven’t yet glimpsed the understanding that God is not external to you–but that you are God in human form, and that you are creating everything in your experience. As we grow in consciousness, and understand the Truth of Who We Are, absolute belief evolves into absolute knowing. Absolute knowing is beyond faith–absolute knowing is as powerful as it gets. This is the reward of surrendering to your God-Realized Self, the aspect of you that has never left the frequency level of God-knowingness.
This is what we’re evolving toward. But there is a point in between–a point at which you have grown beyond the idea of the parental God, but haven’t yet made it to total energy mastery and absolute knowing. While you’re at this in-between point, with much of your experience spent in the sublime higher frequencies, and one foot in the duality matrix with ego doubts rampant, faith is what sustains your vital energetic connection with the Divine Design for Wholenss. Faith is a true gift of grace, and like a sort of “divine porch light,” it is what will illumine your way Home.
